Similar to a typical day in the life of a preschooler, the scenes and activities are relatable, easy to navigate, and charming. Helping the monsters along can be both fun and empowering, and focusing on monsters instead of kids adds the kind of silliness kids love. This app is also an easy first selection for preschoolers new to the world of apps. Though adding some audio instructions for at least the first scene or two could be helpful for kids who prefer listening to directions, it's still pretty straightforward to understand what to do and why. It would also be great to have a bit more interactivity, a wider range of reactions from the monsters, and more preschool-themed scenes that introduce kids to shapes or colors to add to the learning potential.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
